Bella and Friends | Interactive Card

I just recently found a fellow card crafter Leslie Oman and her CCWM challenges. I liked her evening craft of this interactive card and needed one myself for an upcoming event I thought I would try one of my own.

I first created my clouds with distress ink and a template moving upwards. Then turned it around and did the grass with another template and sponged the same way. I then set the background aside to dry and stamped my images on spectrum noir 100lb paper. I colored the puppy and the parrot with copic markers. Put some wink of stella onto the balloon and spectrum noir sparkle on the parrot and the puppies collar. Gave the balloon a coating of glossy accents and set aside over night to dry.

Then I cut the background out and the placement for the slider with blueprints 31, adhered everything together and made sure the slider worked. Glue my stamped image on and stamps the sentiments, raised the card front panel with fun foam and attached it to the turquoise card base.

Neat and Tangled | Cottontail Cuties

I made quite a few slider cards for Easter, and they were a big hit. Interactive cards are a lot of work to make but the end result is they are a lot of fun to play with. This stamp set, Cottontail Cuties by Neat & Tangled was so very cute to color and there were so many color combinations you could do with it.

Birthday Flyby | Magical Dragons

Here is a super cute card I wanted to share with you that I made for a dear friend for her birthday. This set is the Magical Dragons by Birdie Brown. It was all the craze this summer and I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. It sold out like crazy on all the online stores but I finally got mine.

I created the background clouds with Tim Holtz distress inks, and colored the dragons in with copic markers. Sponged the clouds with distress inks to help them stand out. The dragons wings have spectrum clear sparkle marker on them. I then pop dotted the dragons and the clouds up for some dimension. Added PPP clear mix sequins randomly over the card for more twinkling effect.

Altenew Peony Bouquet | Color Throwdown #401 | Zig Clean Color Real Brushes

Hi Everyone! Earlier this week I had given you a sneak peak on Tuesday on the start of this card(if I have you on FB). This was my very first time using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, wow I just love them. Taa-daa---  My card is so bright and vibrant the picture does not do it justice.

I used Altenew Peony Bouquet stamp and stamped the image onto Bristol smooth paper with VersaMark clear ink, and heat set it with white embossing powder. Die-namics Blueprint 13 frame die was used to cut the image out and glued onto fun foam for dimension and then glued onto a burgundy card stock base and glued once again onto a 110lb white card stock base.

Birthday Delight

Hello Everyone,  Popping by this week to show you my take on this weeks #colorthrowdown (ctd398). I loved the bright colors Lynn choose for this challenge, as did so many other paper crafters as well. I used the Freshly made sketches as my sketch this week!! (fms242)

I am in love with my new stamps from Altenew, the layering and varieties I am able to come up with are endless from this set. I cut my red panel from DCWV citrus mat stack using mft Blueprint 13 frame. The circle is die cut from SSS stitched circles and Echo Park- Summer bliss paper. I die cut the word happy twice, once with paper and once with fun foam. Colored the paper with twisted citron distressed ink. I hope you enjoy this weeks card.
